Just because you ride for fun or with your kids doesn't mean you can't have a tricked out ride. What have you done to your rec bike to make it more practical, fun or bad-arsed? Show the pictures!
And if you ARE still riding a plain-Jane "comfort" bike, paint it orange or put streamers on it. As a mater of fact, I think I'm going to do the baseball card mod to my ride next!
As for my whip? 2005 Trek 820 with Topek child carrier rack, center stand, Wald basket, dual-flashlight mounts, Velo Orange Tourist bars, touring tires and 3/4 fenders usually pulling a Burly trailer. Pics to follow.
